FRÜH Restaurant & Bar
"FRÜH" has always represented typical Cologne hospitality and having a good time in good company: the modern "HOF 18 Restaurant", the Bistro and the famous "Brauhaus Früh" offer a great culinary variety on three floors.
In the traditional "Brauhaus" one can find local cuisine in historical surroundings of the brewery founded in 1904. The traditional waiter "Köbes" cares for your bodily comforts and serves "Kölsch" and typical regional dishes on smoothly scrubbed wooden tables.
The modern "HOF 18 Restaurant" has recently re-opened after extensive renovation and can be found on the first floor, in the former private living room of the Früh family. Here with a magnificent view of the cathedral one can enjoy fine colorful cross-cultural cuisine in a pleasant atmosphere.
In the "HOF 18 Bar-Bistro" we serve coffee, snacks and cocktails.
Typically "Kölsch" since 1904
Shortly after the turn of century in 1904, Peter Josef Früh established his new brewhouse called "Cölner Hofbräu P. Josef Früh" in the building of the former Central Theatre. This very day the heart of the FRÜH-gastronomy still beats at this place. In the cosy rooms of the brewhouse the traditional waiter “Köbes” cares for your bodily comforts and serves local “Kölsch” beer and typical regional dishes on smoothly scrubbed wooden tables. The seats in the beergarden are a popular place to be, as soon as the weather is nice.
One part of the Früh history has been hidden for a long time: our "Brauhaus Cellar". The medieval vaults in the former fermentation and storage cellar have been exposed and restored after the relocation of the brewery in 1998. Since that time draft "Kölsch" beer is served at the cellar bar. Look over the chef's shoulder while preparing your meal in our open kitchen.

The modern HOF 18 Bar-Bistro is affiliated to the hotel lobby on the ground floor of the hotel. Here we serve diverse coffee specialties, freshly prepared snacks and Tartes Flambee, as well as cocktails and longdrinks - and as a matter of course our draft "Kölsch" beer.
Here we offer you everything you expect from a modern bistro. Enjoy the stylish atmosphere with a direct view of two of Cologne's tourist attractions: the Heinzelmännchenbrunnen and the Roncalliplatz. As they say in Cologne, here, too, the cathedral is not far.
